Reboot - Be Tougher / Letters

Label: Cadenza
Catalog#: CADENZA 24
Country: Germany
Released: Dec 2007
Style: Tech House, Minimal

Info: Cadenza Records introduces another new signing to the label: Reboot, aka Frank Heinrich. After releasing tracks for and i220 with his former partner Delle in the duo Delle-Heinrich, the 30-year-old Frankfurt musician takes a dramatic step forward as Reboot, an alias dedicated to grooves both darkly emphatic and dazzlingly polyrhythmic. Launched only a year ago, Heinrich’s Reboot project is so far responsible for the well-received “Charlotte” for Frankfurt’s Below label as well as a recent remix for Greek duo Lemos & Kreon, on Be-Chosen. Where “Charlotte” was suffused with sweetness and light and tentative time-keeping, Reboot’s debut EP for Cadenza Records is considerably darker.

Joel Mull - The Coming

Label: Cocoon Recordings
Catalog#: COR 12 042
Country: Germany
Released: 20 Dec 2007
Style: Tech House, Minimal
Quality: 320 kbps CBR

Info: With his debut single on Cocoon “Harmonautic String", Joel sends us to a journey through the track which is smoothly airy-fairy and thus perfect to dive into the land of dreams after a wild party night. Even when speeding up after a short break with the drums dominating – the track remains harmonic and is designed to dance into the sun in the early morning hours. The B-side appears spacy and melancholic, but again, Mull is able to layer his music so deep and brillant that the basic mood is still vicious with the track still coming along in a magical and elegant way. “Blossom” is exactly the right thing for a cold winter night and reminds of the B-side of Beyer’s Cocoon release. //

Jack Rock - Formation Flying

Label: Tic Tac Toe Records
Catalog#: TTT021R
Country: Denmark
Released: 12 Dec 2007
Style: Techno, Minimal, Tech House
Quality: VBR V2

Info: This release is without a doubt Tic Tac Toe Records best bid for the ”anthem of the year” awards.

Guy Gerber who is so well known for his Cocoon, Bedrock & Supplement Facts releases was nominated best newcomer in German magazine Groove in last years poll, but he’s no newcomer anymore: He’s right up there in the top league alongside the best producers and remixers today and we’re immensely proud to release his excellent remix of Formation Flying on Tic Tac Toe Records.

This is why we decided to release it as a limited single sided 12” in red coloured vinyl so you better go get your hands on this special gem, as long as it’s still in stock!!

Gerber has turned the original melodic track with rich pads into a monster groover featuring hard-hitting beats and in your face melodies, but still keeping the well-known Guy Gerber trancy touch driving the track and crowd further and further into oblivion!

As you can probably tell by now, this remix is a bit harder and deeper than the usual Guy Gerber tracks; as a matter of fact we’re convinced this is among his best works ever! // Resident Advisor
